I install RkHunter and ChkRootKit inside VE. the VE is using Centos 4.4 minimal installation. i download the Centos image from the list on OpenVZ Wiki.
here is the error that i got:

from RkHunter:

Performing 'known good' check...
/bin/kill  [ BAD ]
/sbin/insmod  [ BAD ]
/sbin/lsmod  [ BAD ]
/sbin/modprobe  [ BAD ]
/usr/bin/file  [ BAD ]
Rootkit Hunter has found some bad or unknown hashes. This can happen due to replaced
binaries or updated packages (which give other hashes). Be sure your hashes are
up-to-date (rkhunter --update). If you're in doubt about these hashes, contact
us through the Rootkit Hunter mailinglist at rkhunter-users at lists.sourceforge.net.

is this false positives??

from ChkRootKit:
Checking `lkm'... You have    74 process hidden for readdir command
chkproc: Warning: Possible LKM Trojan installed

note that this VPS is a fresh install, how come there is several errors above?
